When it comes to graphics and art for the game, there seemed to be a very mixed bag. There was a wide range of "Programmer Art" which is best described as the bare minimum for you to be able to tell what an item is. Then, when it came to the actual parts and modules of the space station, there was a decent level of detail. The launch sequences for the different delivery vehicles left much visually to be desired. They are these chunky smoke plumes and line drawings that look very last minute. There are many icons for the game that appear to give status and tasks for your astronauts. I had a hard time with these because most were overstylized and were not very well thought out as to their meaning and implications.
You have the option to change the appearance of the astronauts you create. I actually thought I had found a glitch, as I could not tell the difference in the genders. There were eventually enough differences in the characters to be unique.
They spent more time on the music and sounds for the game than I would have thought they would. There was even a title song. I am not sure how it came to be, as in if they made it for the game or they found an appropriate song that they could license. Either way, it was a nice addition. The voiceovers, on the other hand, were very dry and repetitive. This was especially annoying when the A.I. decided it would handle the interactions between the characters.
